Artist's Description

The towers of silence were cemetaries for the people of the zoroastrian faith in Iran, they don’t believe in contamination of the earth or air so burying and incineration is forbidden, instead the bodies would be placed in the towers to be eaten by vultures.

Good luck in the afterlife was decided based on which eye the bird would eat first.
